Before I cast Joy, I was looking for someone whose voice is very special. Joy's voice was very special, and that's why I wanted to meet her again. And the second time we met, I found her to be very pretty. When I cast actors, I use their acting ability and energy as major factors in evaluating them. In case of Joy, I gave her a perfect score in terms of her energy because she has energy which makes people happy. So, I decided to cast her as the lead actress of the drama even though she's never appeared in any TV dramas. She's doing great now, and I think it's because she has been trained for a long time as a trainee of SM Entertainment.
